TORONTO Dec 11 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index turned positive on Thursday morning as strength in commodity stocks offset a slump in the consumer discretionary sector, which was pulled lower by weak quarterly earnings and guidance from Gildan Activewear Inc (GIL.TO: Quote).

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was up 1.77 points at 8,635.77. (Reporting by Jennifer Kwan; editing by Peter Galloway)
